Flight Route Details
This flight focuses on the beautiful flood plains fed by the Diamantina River, known as the Goyder Lagoon. In a wet year this area comes alive with its thousands of finger-like channels filling for kilometres before the floodwater continues onwards to Lake Eyre.
The lagoon and channels attract an array of birdlife and supply an abundance of feed for stock from surrounding cattle stations. The unique contrast of this amazing channel country against the backdrops of the Simpson and Sturt Stony Deserts is a visual feast only able to be enjoyed from the air.
Birdsville Aviation operate 2 aircraft including a Cessna Grand Caravan which features high wing, air-conditioning, 14 seats and turbine engine reliability. It also operates a Cessna 210 which is a 5 seater, high wing aircraft utilised for smaller parties.
